Photos have emerged of the latest Lady Gaga and Beyoncé video collaboration. This time the Grammy-winning pop divas are hooking up to shoot the clip for “Telephone,” Gaga’s latest single, featuring Beyoncé, “Telephone,” off her album The Fame Monster.
New York magazine reported that the video will involve Beyoncé bailing Gaga out of jail, and it is rumored to be helmed by “Paparazzi” video director Jonas Akerlund. In photos published on PhotoShelter.com, Gaga and Beyoncé are seen shooting in what is reportedly the truck that Uma Thurman drove in Quentin Tarantino’s “Kill Bill.” Herfection.com posted a photo of the pair wearing very frilly leotards in a desert setting. The ladies reportedly shot the video outside Los Angeles on January 28 in Lancaster, California.
The clip will also include scenes at a diner, a cameo from singer/model Tyrese and a prison shower scene. Gaga and B will wear “destroyed denim pieces” by designers Franc Fernandez and Oscar Olima, according to New York.
A Tarantino tribute is nothing new for Beyoncé and Gaga. In their “Video Phone” clip, B famously paid homage to “Reservoir Dogs.” In that video, directed by Hype Williams, Gaga purposely toned down her usually flamboyant style.
“I said, ’I want to do you in your video, and I want to tribute you. I want to dress up like you,’ ” Gaga recalled telling her co-star. “And Hype Williams … was so excited. He was like, ’Gaga I want no makeup on your face.’ It was really stripped down — real Beyoncé hair, and we wore the same outfit in the video, and I [paid tribute to] her.”
